)-- Brentano’s Gallery collection was a long time in the making. Design Director Iris Wang and her team had been contemplating an artwork-inspired collection for over a decade and knew that fall of 2012 would be the right time to introduce it. Each of Gallery’s 14 textiles are influenced directly by the construction of a piece of art—the form—or the feeling behind it—the content. Every fabric has been considered down to the last detail: fiber content, weave, and how it is colored all speak to the best way to interpret the technical composition or the feeling evoked by a specific artist or work of art.
In a collection inspired by the great artists of the world, it is no surprise that Gallery introduces beautiful textiles such as the minimalist drapery Stella, the ultra-luxurious Tamara, voided-velvet Cloudscape, and the intricate Quinan, each of which will add an artistic touch to any interior.
Founded in 1990 by Design Director Iris Wang and her husband, President E-Kwan Chen, Brentano has grown from a modest beginning of eight patterns to an internationally represented textile house. Brentano's fabrics stem from Wang's philosophy of balancing beauty + performance. Their growing collection of eco-fabrics expands this ideology by demanding textiles meet thoroughly researched standards of environmental consciousness while maintaining their beauty. Having celebrated their 20th anniversary in 2010, Brentano continues to offer a variety of innovative and interesting textiles, including eco-friendly faux leather, high performance upholstery, fire-resistant, outdoor, Crypton, Nano-Tex and GreenShield fabrics.
